Today, Larry Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced that Xbox 360 games Brutal Legend and Greg Hastings Paintball 2 are now backward compatible on Xbox One. The two games aren't the heavy-hitters fans were hoping for, but they're still a lot of fun.
Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft's consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there.
Brutal Legend is an action game which features Jack Black and and a heavy metal theme. Your task is to save the world, but there are a lot of hurdles along the way. Even famous singers like Ozzy Osbourne make appearances. Brutal Legend is regarded as a modern cult classic so be sure to play it if you haven't yet.
Greg Hastings Paintball 2
Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is exactly that. If you don't want to use bullets, then you can always use paintballs to blast away the competition.
Be sure to check out these games on Xbox One if you're looking for a break between new experiences like The Crew 2. Even to this day Brutal Legend and Greg Hastings Paintball 2 remain quite enjoyable.
